Summon Monster VIII
|Name:||Summon Monster VIII|
|Level:||Clr 8, FvS 8, Sor/Wiz 8, Wlk 5|
|Spell Point Cost:||45|
Summons 1 Monster from 3 choices: Bezekira, Greater Air Elemental, Orthon to fight for you for 10 minutes. You can only have 1 summoned creature of any type serving you at a time. Summoning a new creature of any type will return the previous one to its home plane.
This spell has no timer associated, so you have to figure out yourself how much summoning time remains. On the plus side, the summoned creature won't disappear through rest. (But will if the caster dies or leaves the instance.) The summoned Monster cannot be given orders nor use ladders, climb walls, or jump off platforms. It is affected by beneficial and detrimental spells much like any Hireling or party member.
It's often more efficient spell-points wise to summon a new creature than to heal an existing one; your Hirelings will unfortunately do the latter!
Casting time is much longer than other spells of the same level.
All summoned creatures are CR 14.
